The researchers observed the trend for one month before coming to the final conclusion that-wearable devices indeed can be very effective in increasing the productivity of the employees.
Bottom line behind this fact could be the possibility with which the employees are able to do multiple things with the help of wearable devices. Also, there is no denying that wearable devices are the next big thing of the industry after tablet computing. It is also a product which can be used my masses.
Some of the fact which came out during the research are:

As we all have accepted that wearable devices are next big thing, slowly and gradually the non IT people are also adopting to the idea of it.
